This is from the New York Times's fair and balanced coverage of the Glenn Beck rally:

"In the Tea Party’s talk of states’ rights, critics say they hear an echo of slavery, Jim Crow and George Wallace. Tea Party activists call that ridiculous: they do not want to take the country back to the discrimination of the past, they say, they just want the states to be able to block the federal mandate on health insurance."Where Dr. King Stood, Tea Party Claims His Mantle, By Kate Zernike, New York Times, August 27, 2010

There's a name for people who hear echoes like that—schizophrenic. How many of those people can get their echoes in the New York Times?
